Precision Pro Golf Unveils R1 Smart Rangefinder

CINCINNATI, OH – Precision Pro Golf  – a technology company that creates innovative products to help golfers of all skill levels enjoy the game more – announces the R1 Smart Rangefinder, the company’s most-advanced model to date, is now available for preorder at

The R1 features game-changing MYSLOPE™ technology, the first-ever personalized slope calculation that creates an adjusted distance specific to a player and their environment. The patented MYSLOPE™ algorithm combines a player’s unique ball data (launch angle, ball speed, spin rate) with environmental variables (temperature, altitude, humidity, etc.). The result is a game-changing level of accuracy applied to every course, club, and swing for a number specific to every player.

The R1 ($319.99) does not require players to look at or use their phones during a round of golf. Instead, data is seamlessly relayed via Bluetooth from the Precision Pro Golf app (available for iOS and Android) to the unit, where all figures and measurements are displayed through the viewfinder. Beyond providing actual and MYSLOPE adjusted distances, with a push of a button the R1 will display yardages to the front, middle and back of the green. MYSLOPE functions can be easily disengaged for USGA-conforming play via a toggle on the side of the rangefinder.

MYSLOPE™ was created by Precision Pro’s in-house team of data analysts, who wanted to design a system that was more personal and provided individualized distances to users. The complex algorithm uses weather information from the player’s smartphone, including data on air density, air pressure, altitude, etc. Golfers can also enter their unique ball data into the Precision Pro Golf app or create a profile that draws from the ball flight data of thousands of other users with similar traits. The result is the most personalized distance measurements ever.

As with Precision Pro Golf’s other popular rangefinders, crystal clarity is achieved through the enhanced LCD display, which provides 6x magnification to ensure golfers always find their target. Additional features of the R1 include:

  • Wind Assist™ – Lets the golfer know how wind might potentially impact the distance of each shot
  • Find My Precision Pro – Notifies the golfer when their rangefinder is missing and reminds them to secure it when the round is over
  • GPS Distances – Slope-adjusted distances to the front, center, and back of the green
  • Target Acquisition Technology – Makes it simple to lock on a target, even with shaky hands
  • Pulse Vibration – Delivers a short burst to ensure players are shooting the flag and not at another target
  • Magnetic Cart Grip – Easily sticks to the cart, clubs or any other metal object

Established in 2013 by a group of avid golfers who believed too many players were being priced out of the rangefinder market, Precision Pro Golf sets out to design high-quality, attainable alternatives. The brand has continued to bring innovative solutions to the industry for nearly a decade, purposefully avoiding the one-size-fits-all design mentality and instead designing their own products with specific audiences in mind.

Beyond the R1, Precision Pro offers a variety of rangefinders and accessories, including the popular NX7, NX9 and NX9 Slope models. On all rangefinders, Precision Pro offers free shipping, a 90-day money back guarantee and the only free lifetime battery replacement program in the industry.

Customer service is a hallmark of Precision Pro, as indicated by its Precision Care Package. Beyond the 90-day money back guarantee and free lifetime battery replacement, the company also offers a two-year warranty and guaranteed trade-in allowance, wherein they provide customers a 30% discount for trading in existing Precision Pro Golf product toward the purchase of new ones.
